Did anyone else see Mariah Carey have a Spinal Tap moment Thanksgiving day during halftime of the Atlanta game on Fox? There was a huge butterfly prop and someone had the brilliant idea that it would be a good idea for Mariah to emerge gracefully from the body of the butterlfy.
Problem number one is that it was a disgusting idea. A butterfly giving birth to Mariah Carey will haunt my dreams for many nights to come.
Problem number two is that the producers had apparently never seen the movie This is Spinal Tap. What if Mariah gets stuck in the butterfly and has to claw her way out? That's exactly what happened. However, it was just for a fleeting moment and most people probably didn't even notice it. For example, my family thought I was halluciniating and hysterical from a carb overload as I choked on my pecan pie at the sight of Mariah briefly trapped in her little butterfly coffin.
It was a little gift from the football halftime Gods and so much better than Janet Jackson's boob.
